Buddha told his disciple Ananda that the teachings on emptiness – the fundamental reality of ourselves and everything in the world we inhabit - are so important that he should not forget a single word he had heard the Buddha teach on it.
There will be an explanation of the meaning of emptiness, its relevance to the Buddhist path as a whole, and the purpose of gaining a deep inner experience of it. In fact, even wondering about the meaning of emptiness is said to have a deep impact on our life and way of being, let alone a true realization. This course will look at just why it is that reasoning has to be used to get an accurate understanding of emptiness, and will moreover go into some of the most important lines of reasoning required to penetrate its meaning.
These teachings are interpreted by Venerable Steve Carlier (Gelong Thubten Sherab).
